Not too bad, crappy mileage and it'll be slow.

How wide are the 33's you are planning on getting? those wheels are 10" wide which is good for about 12"-14" wide tires. It should work on something down to about 10" maybe but would look funny.

i would get a rim with 3.75 BS. it will inscrease your track width a little bit, which you want if your putting bigger tires on.

and like mentioned already, you will be fine with factory gears and 33"s
